[birdky] Re: Thoughts On Hunting Cranes

I have heard sandhills taste like dirt. Cattle pastures are some of the main 
hangouts of sandhills in central Florida. KY does not have to invent the 
wheel, just follow TN's lead and put this debate on hold and think about it 
some more. Why does KY have to be the first state east of the Mississippi to 
have a season on sandhills. I think it is a big mistake.
